In a month starting with International Children’s Day, the Charity Car team was keen to celebrate one of our incredible partners within our Children category… So, we’re delighted to put a spotlight on Rainbow Trust as our Partner of the Month for June 2019! A brightly coloured spotlight of course!

Chairty Car Partner Of The Month - Rainbow Trust

It’s a situation most parents can’t even bring themselves to think about, but there are an estimated 49,000 young people in the UK living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. Rainbow Trust supports those families in the greatest need - struggling day-to-day, while facing the very real possibility that their child may die.

The charity’s Family Support Workers give emotional and practical support to whole families at home, at hospital and in the community. The Charity Car team was deeply moved reading the case studies of families that have been supported by Rainbow Trust. We also realised how far old car donations could go towards helping these strained families. Playing with a sick child so a parent could do some housework without worrying, taking a sibling to playdates so they could have some time to themselves, or helping with transport to hospital and explaining treatments. These may all seem like simple activities, but they can have such a huge impact on families struggling to maintain normality.

Rainbow Trust with a Happy Child

The heart-warming result of Rainbow Trust’s work is giving the families they work with quality time together and of course some much needed fun! The charity’s fundraising is in that same spirit, and its latest campaign ‘Bring Back the Colour’ is bringing the joy of rainbows to workplaces, schools and clubs, all while raising vital funds.Rainbow School

You can find out about helping the Rainbow Trust with its bright campaign and if you know Charity Car at all, you’ll know that our brains go straight to cars! We’d love to get a rainbow of cars donated to Rainbow Trust and in the mean time we’ll be trying to recreate this little rainbow in the carpark!

Rainbow Cars

An average scrap car donation to Rainbow Trust via the Charity Car scheme could pay for a few hours of vital, practical and emotional support for a family. Or, a car with enough life left in it to auction might be able to fund bereavement support for each family member as long as it’s needed. There are thousands of families across the UK who could benefit from Rainbow Trust’s support. Your help, whether that’s a rainbow-themed bake sale or an old car donation (in any colour) could help them.
